With a system of property registration in place, ownership should be straight forward. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When property ownership is shared, a host of issues can arise; are the owners interests equal, does the registered ownership reflect the owners’ respective intentions and interests, what happens if one owner wants to leave the ownership arrangement?
Unravelling and resolving the issues that sometimes come with joint ownership of land or property can be complex. It may involve a combination of trust law, forensic accounting, as well as knowledge of the relevant statutory framework.
